For you

Hello!

I’m sending everyone flowers to brighten their day! I love purple flowers, but sadly they are hard to find in some varieties. The great thing about sending handmade cards is you can color the flowers any color you wish.

This gorgeous die from Crafty Meraki called Avery Mini Slimline Die is perfect to get creative with.

The flower portion of my card is from a die cut. The die was cut using X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following markers and colored pencils.

~Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils~

Flowers: BV02, BV000, BV0000, RV63, RV00, RV000, RV0000 then Prismacolor 996, 994, 956, 929, 938
Flower Centers: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Greens: YG63, YG61, YG13, YG01, G21, G20
Border: C4, C2, C0

My card base is 1/8″ larger than the die cut to give it the look of being layered. I added a patterned paper behind the flowers to add a little bit of visual interest. The sentiment was stamped from the Thanks Bunches Clear Stamp Set.

Fangs for being my friend

Hi friends!

I am scared to death of live bats, but this little paper version sure is cute!

This little cutie is from Crafty Meraki and is included in the stamp set called Ghoul Friends. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Ghostly Greetings.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following markers.

~Copics~
Bat: C6, C5, C3, C2, C1, C0, RV11, R000

I started with a 5″ square top folding card base. To that I added a black layer 4-3/4″ square, a print layer 4-1/2″ square and a striped layer 3-1/2″ square. Out of black cardstock I die cut the largest die from the My Favorite Things Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Flags Die Set. The white square measures 2-3/4″.

The black fishtail flag and the bat were attached with double sided foam tape. I added the white dots with a white gel pen.
